The second presidential debate will be hosted by CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC News’ Martha Raddatz, it was announced Friday by the Commission on Presidential Debates. If he and his counterparts can transfer the energy that Americans experienced throughout the primary debate process, meaningful light might actually be shed both on Trump and on Clinton, a candidate who, as has been widely noted by a press that wants her to host a press conference, avoids press conferences.

The third presidential debate, to be moderated by Wallace on October 19, and first will be traditional question-and-answer sessions with the journalist choosing the topics.

It will be the first time since 1984 that the general election campaign’s much-anticipated first debate won’t be moderated by the now-retired Jim Lehrer of PBS.

The long-anticipated moderators for this year’s presidential debates were announced Friday.

Next in line is the singular vice presidential debate, which will be moderated by CBS News anchor Elaine Quijano at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, Tuesday, Oct. 4.

“Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace will moderate the third presidential debate set for October 19, the Commission on Presidential Debates said Friday in a statement.

Romney later said of the incident: “Well, I don’t think it’s the role of the moderator in a debate to insert themselves into the debate and to declare a victor or a loser on a particular point”.

The first debate between Trump and Clinton will take place on 26 September at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. Half of the questions will be posed by citizen participants and the other half will come from the moderators.

The second presidential debate is on October 9th in St. Louis, Missouri. Holt has never moderated a presidential debate.

Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace will moderate the third presidential debate.

According to the New York Times, Hillary Clinton’s advisors are already preparing for her first debate against Trump – piling on the research and coming up with strategy to “undermine” Trump in the debates.

Bringing the presidential debates to a close, Fox News’ Chris Wallace will attempt to keep things orderly on Wednesday, Oct. 19. The Republican and Democratic parties created the commission in 1987 because, as the commission writes, the “hastily arranged” debates in 1984 “reinforced a mounting concern that, in any given election”, the candidates might fail to face off.

“I am writing to express disappointment, and frankly disbelief”, Falco said in the letter, addressed to Janet Brown, executive director of the commission.

Another survey, released this week, from USA Today / Suffolk University indicated Hillary Clinton continued to maintain a 7 point lead over Trump, similar to what she experienced after the Democratic National Convention. The debates should give voters the opportunity to see all the candidates on the ballot, representing the diversity of American political thought, discussing important issues in an unscripted manner so that the people can make informed decisions about the direction of our country.
